OUR STORY

This is the prayer house that faith built.

Morning Star Prayer Center’s story began in 2008 after our founder, Helen Collins Epps obediently responded to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Mother Epps sought to provide a space where all God’s children could convene in exuberant worship and service to God the Father and one another – and she wanted that space to feel warm and loving, just like home.

OUR VISION

We are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Our decision making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE

The bedrock of our ministry lies in four core beliefs. Each affirms and informs our ministry outreach and community presence as we pursue our mission and vision for the future. Each belief is berthed in and through scripture.

WE WERE CALLED TO BE A HOUSE OF BOLD PRAYERS

Matthew 21:13a

Prayer is perpetual conversation with God. Through it, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, we can ask and receive anything according to His will.

AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS MATTER

John 13:34b

We were created for community and service to God by demonstrating Christ’s love to all people.

GOD’S PROMISE FOR HIS PEOPLE NEVER FAILS.

Luke 18:27

We are imperfect folks with a very real desire to please God. By grace, through faith, we will see His promises come to pass as we seek his face.

SPIRITUAL AND NATURAL PROVISION HAS POWER

Acts 2:42,44-46

The same God who hears and inspires our prayers calls us to fill empty bellies, clothe bare backs and stand in the gap whenever there’s a hole. We’re pray-ers and doers. The two go hand in hand.
